An unusual case study of cardiac chest pain and the challenges of identifying myocardial infarction from ST-elevation only
A paramedic crew were dispatched to a 50-year-old male presenting with central chest pain. Upon arrival, the man was in a critical condition in cardiogenic shock, with an ECG that was not typical for displaying signs of an acute myocardial infarction demonstrated by STelevation. This presentation identifies the importance of understanding ECG changes suggestive of myocardial infarction without ST-elevation.
